Not Nostalgia, Ante-Nostalgia

7/8 Formalities over
Now it boils down to the crucial one month or few more;
Of Day 0s, Day 1s, ...Day 22s...---> Day ∞,
Of Shocks and of underdogs becoming heroes.
Talks about "C.G & C.V" instead of Bandi, Sitcoms and Animes.
Of few treats and numerous heartbreaks,
Of GPLs and Hugs.
Which all put together,
Will trigger nostalgia.

#TwitterFBwish- Jugaad for a wish

Atheist Alert: You are advised not to read this any further and simply close the tab. Thanks!

In India and abroad, chiefly eastern countries we have a unique custom. We have an innovative and creative Jugaad to bribe and/or please our numerous Gods and Goddesses.
In this age of disruptive innovation, viral marketing, etc. etc. we have something called “mannat” in India (not to be confused with Shahrukh's home). We make a wish and tie something like coconut inside red cloth to an old tree or similar holy object in the temple area. Sometimes just tying a knot of red cloth does no less good. The wish is kept confidential. Finally, when it does get fulfilled you have to come back and undo the tying process and thank God/Goddess.

In this auspicious occasion of Diwali, I also want at least one wish to get granted. I cannot travel to such mannat-place, though. I have come up with another Jugaad. I’ve wished for something and planned to keep it confidential. I have posted something in a discreet way like tying a coconut wrapped inside a red piece of cloth.

I would again post about my wish if it is fulfilled and let the world know what my wish was. In this way I would thank Facebook and God. Even you can fulfill your wish like this. Just post on Facebook or tweet something related to your mannat and you can use the hashtag: #TwitterFBwish. When your wish is fulfilled just let the world know about it. Simple, ain’t it?
Happy Diwali and Prosperous New Year (Vikrami Samvat 2067). May Goddess Laxmi shower immense wealth on you.
